This kitten is guaranteed to be healthy before leaving Sellers home and has been vet checked by our veterinarian before leaving.  Upon receipt of kitten, Buyer has 3 days (or 72 hours) to have a complete physical examination done by a veterinarian of their choosing.  Kitten must be kept secluded from all other pets until after examination. This health guarantee is void if Buyer fails to have a vet examine the kitten within 3 days of purchase.  All veterinary care and fees are the responsibility of the Buyer.  Please keep in mind that new kittens may show signs of stress when brought into a new environment which may include sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, diarrhea or constipation.   These should resolve within a few days.  The kitten will need additional vaccines and may need to be wormed again by your vet, as multiple wormings are necessary in most kittens.

If this kitten is found to have any life-threatening illness or congenital defect that results in death within one year of kittens DATE OF BIRTH above, Buyer must immediately notify Seller and provide Seller with a written statement from a licensed veterinarian stating the unquestionable illness or congenital defect.  If death results from a congenital or hereditary defect, Seller will then replace the kitten with a comparable replacement, chosen by the Seller, within a year.  Buyer agrees to give authorization for Seller to make verbal contact with examining veterinarian before replacing the kitten.  All veterinary care and associated costs are the responsibility of Buyer. 

The kitten has a one year guarantee from the date of birth against lethal genetic or congenital defects, including Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM).  If a lethal genetic or congenital defect presents itself within the first year that results in death, seller shall replace kitten (less shipping charges, if applicable) upon being provided a necropsy report (at buyers expense) from a licensed veterinarian stating the unquestionable genetic or congenital defect that resulted in death.  No replacement will be given without a necropsy. No exceptions!  The kitten will be replaced with a traditional blue or seal kitten in a pattern of the Sellers choosing within one year, and will be given out of a spring or summer litter.  Chocolates, Lilacs, Blue Eyed Whites and Minks are not given as replacements.  NO VETERINARY EXPENSES OR MONETARY REFUNDS FOR A KITTEN PURCHASED FROM THREE RIVERS RAGDOLLS WILL BE GIVEN FOR ANY REASON.
